This is how I spent my Christmas Day, hiking on Aspen Vista. The views were amazing.

As some of you may remember my partner passed away a year ago today.
I've never really taken a break not even from my blog to think a reflect on what I will do now, well
it's time, I have family flying in tomorrow to spend some time with me and I hope to be back soon but as the title says, nothing is certain. Be well my friends.

This has to be one of the most photographed entry in Santa Fe. The home sits on the corner of Canyon Road and Delgado Street. You can walk by and always see both amature and professional photographers snapping away. When all of the flower in the planter are in bloom it is amazing.

This was taken with my iPhone. I take 3-5 mile walks in the evening and I could not resist pausing to look at this amazing evening sky. Probably a preview of this weeks evenings to come. There are storms forecasted everyday this week.

I have a favorite place that I like to have lunch on the weekends that has the best fresh processed juices. I normally park in the front of the building but yesterday I had to part behind the building and this is what I saw.

I would love to have a scooter but this is not a safe city for bicycles much less a scooter.
We are in need of more lanes that make it safer for people who prefer alternative transportation.
I found this scooter out side of Warehouse 21.

Now I know that the word arcade makes most think of video games or at least it does to me.
The Santa Fe Arcade is actually filled with various shops, a Mircobrewery and a cupcake shop whose frosting can make one swoon and beg for more. The umbrellas are on the patio of the Draft Station.
A nice place if your beer lover and a nice spot to listen to the music on the bandstand.

Our monsoon season has been an active one this year. Early in the day this is what the skies look like, by later afternoon early evening they turn gray and there's thunder in the distance. We needed the water and it's here.

Let me start by say I do not have a green thumb. I do love a nice garden though. My partner was the gardner in our little family. I could not bare having no color around my house so I planted a memorial garden. I did miss one pot though and something started to come up so instead of pulling out like a weed I watered it and this is what I got. If anyone can tell me what it is I would appreciate knowing.
Other than that I am proud of my little experiment so I took this shot.
Oh and as for the rest of the garden, it looking pretty good. I guess I have an angel watching over it.

This is not the ice cream truck I was used to as a kid. Looks a little sketchy if you ask me.
I will have to inspect it tonight when I go back to the bandstand.
Last night my company sponsored the National Theatre Live broadcast of
"Man and Superman" starring Ralph Fiennes. If you get the chance to see it
I highly recommend it.

My first visit to the bandstand this season was to see this group. Humming House from Nashville brought the party to Santa Fe. They were the perfect beginning for my summer music season.
I even bought one of their cds. Here is the song that sold me, click here.
I have another work event that I have to attend tonight. I will see you all tomorrow.

The Santa Fe Bandstand series began last Wednesday. Last night I had to go check out the music by a group called Humming House and the sponsors. Needless to say I could not visit blogs last night or tonight for that matter. Tonight my company will be sponsoring the bandstand so I will be working late tonight. I'll be back on Thursday to visit your blogs.

We have been getting our fair share of rain the last few weeks and it shows in the vegetation.
While driving up to Taos I could not believe how green it was. Not normal for this time of year but we are happy for it.

On my way to Taos for the Pow Wow I stopped near on of the points where rafters lauch their rafts into the Rio Grande to ride a few of the rapids down river.
The Pow Wow was amazing and if you ever get the chance to attend one that is
outdoors I highly recommend it. It is some to be experienced.
At the Taos Pueblo Pow Wow you must agree to only use your photos for personal use, printing etc. No selling your photo, posting on social media, websites etc. Not to be a tease but I got some amazing shots.

Today I will be spending the day at the Taos Pueblo Pow Wow.
I love that they allow you to take photographs, unfortunately I can not post them out
respect for dancers. This is a view of the Taos mountains that are located on the pueblo.

This reflection, lights and shadows were all captured on the new Violet Crown theater.
I saw my first movie there yesterday. Love the big comfortable seats and the fact that I could reserve my seat the night before. What did I see your probably wondering, Terminator Genisys and yes I enjoyed it.

Friday nights we have movies at the Railyard Park near my house. This Friday's movie was "Grease."
It also happened to be a sing alone, no I didn't sing and yes I know all the words I just didn't want to scare people. Coming soon, Rocky Horror Picture Show!

I lost my father in 2001 but everytime I see old trucks and cars I think of him because he loved to work on vehicles. There were many times that I was by his side while he disassembled and engine and put it back together again. It was not my idea of how to spend a summer but I am so grateful for the memories. Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there!
